The USA is home to several of the world's most exciting cities, some truly mind-blowing landscapes, a strong sense of regionalism, a trenchant mythology, more history than the country gives itself credit for and, arguably, some of the most approachable natives in the world. The US was fashioned from an incredibly disparate population who, with little in common apart from a desire to choose their own paths to wealth or heaven, rallied around the ennobling ideals of the Declaration of Independence to forge the richest, most inventive and most powerful country on earth.

OUR FINAL MEMORIES OF COCOA BEACH will be of the blustery weather spawned by the storms that raked the Northeast. Only the heartiest souls were seen on the beach and the fishing deteriorated to the point that I fed the last of my bait and a small bluefish ... Read more >
